A design concept to create more privacy for patients in hospital wards

The design concept PRIVACY is a medical furniture that creates more privacy for patients in shared hospital rooms.
In hospitalrooms patients don`t have any possibility to screen themselves. They are at the mercy of their environment. In some certain situations patients very often feel ashamed, overwhelmed or paraded.
To provide the patients more privacy and a "safety zone" the design concept PRIVACY got developed.
